Exporting to Italy

E-commerce · 10 min read

Are there signs of a new Italian renaissance?

Food. Art. Architecture. Fashion. Literature. Few countries can claim to have contributed so much to the world. From the civilization builders of ancient Rome and the Roman Empire to the artistic and scientific advancements of the Renaissance, Italy has shaped the intellectual trajectory of the modern world.

Still got the style

As a result of its rich history, modern Italy is a tourist hotspot. More than 52 million people visit each year, making Italy the fifth most popular global tourist destination. 

The ancient monuments of Rome, including the mighty Colosseum, St. Peter's Basilica, and Pantheon, help Rome attract 8 million tourists every year. Six million visitors head for Milan each year – the fashion capital of the world, known for its upmarket shopping centers and luxury lifestyle. Milan is also Italy’s main financial city, home to the Italian stock exchange.
